Shirley, NY - Sept. 25, 2018 - William Floyd Elementary School will be hosting their second annual “Color Run” event on Saturday, October 20, at 9 am, the event is rain or shine. WFE’s newest tradition, dubbed “Color Me WFE,” is a five kilometer untimed run in which participants or “Color Runners” are doused from head-to-toe in different colors at each kilometer mark. Color runners are encouraged to run, jog or walk around William Floyd Elementary School at their own pace. The event is hosted by the fifth-grade class of 2018-19 and all proceeds will go toward fifth grade field trips and other educational experiences. All students and families from across the district are welcome to participate.
Last year’s first ever “Color Run” event was a tremendous success. Approximately $6,000 was raised and the majority of it went toward funding a Broadway trip for the fifth graders. Remaining funds were used to purchase class t-shirts at no cost to students and families as well as to lower the price of the fifth-grade yearbook.
Register for the “Color Run” by Wednesday, October 3 to receive a t-shirt, race bib and an individual color packet for the color celebration that will take place at the end of the event. There will also be refreshments, snacks, music and more, so sign up today!
